NEXT STEP OF SW WAKE
Helping each other navigate the IDD world.
Next Step of SW Wake (NSSWW) is a support group for parents and caregivers of adult children with
special needs. Our goal is to provide an environment of support and assist with information to navigate
through the system, especially when their child is preparing to graduate from high school. We invite
various presenters throughout the year to share valuable information about their services as well as
have open discussions for families who are facing particular challenges.
